Ornamental garden grasses are important additions to all gardens - large or small. Most ornamental grasses are NOT like Pampas Grass! Some are low growing - to the extent of ground-hugging and there are also good weeping forms most suited for patio tubs.
Our A - Z list of garden grasses includes the most popular types, with choices of evergreen or deciduous, short or tall, compact or floppy. In your choice of ornamental grass, be sure to get the correct name. For instance there are many Miscanthus sinensis types - all having different characteristics. Hopefully our list and images will help you track down the ornamental grass that you require.
We describe the growing conditions for each grass, together with expected height and spread over the years. The list will be added to as grasses develop. We will always be interested to hear from ornamental grass specialists who have new introductions to offer.
